When I'm trying to download the Sims 3 base game from the complete collection I get an error massage right before it's done.

The massage I get is this: 
I did everything exactly as told in the Installation Guide but every time I try to finish the installation the massage pops up WhatDidUJustCallMe?
Please help me I'm getting pretty frustrated.

Hello sim-splicity and welcome,


I'm not entirely sure, but have you made sure to download + install all available Windows updates ? By default, they should come up automatically, and in your taskbar, just click on the symbol.

Alternatively, you could also o into the System Control Panel, and then (I think) to "System" -> "Windows updates". But I'll look it up later on, if you cannot find it.


Good luck !

Did you extract the contents of the .RAR download with the program "WinRAR", and into an empty folder ? After you did that, try re-starting the installation from that folder.
